I tried for many months on my own to get interviews and a more senior job. Even with Australian experience, I found it tough. The Career Success Australia team turned my situation around. They helped me with every aspect from Resume to Cover Letter to my LinkedIn profile. I did well in my last interview and they offered me the job which I have been in for 3 months now.
